Brian's Battle

Brian Azinheira is an 11 year old young athlete and happy go lucky kid.  He loves to laugh and joke with his friends and will play any sport anytime, anywhere.  Brian is a hockey, soccer, lacrosse and flag football player and can't wait for the next game.  
Unfortunately, Brian has a battle ahead of him, but he is a tough kid and has the positive energy needed to get him through.  During hockey season, where he plays goalie, he suffered an arm injury that looked to be just a torn bicep.  After missing two months to heal his arm, he had just started skating again and reinjured his arm.

Brian and his family got the devastating news that he has a cancerous tumor in the bone of his arm (osteosarcoma).  He has a long road ahead of him, as his treatment plan at Yale New Haven Hospital consists of 10 weeks of chemotherapy, followed by surgery on his arm, and then an additional 17 weeks of chemotherapy.  

Brian and his family can use your emotional and financial support to get through this challenging time.   This fund has been set up to help raise money to support Brian and his family with extra medical and travel expenses required for his treatment.

Please help support Brian and his family through their battle with cancer and alleviate some of the financial burden his family has come into at this difficult time. Your support and encouragement is greatly appreciated.  Let's all rally behind Brian and his family.
